restaurants, crowd bars, gyms, nail salons, cafes and the like. now, ordinary as it seems to us today, there's something actually very new. up until very recently the central fact about a woman in her 20s and early 30s was that she was a wife and mother. whether she was a 23-year-old from china or a 26 year in mad men america. in fact, most people in their 20s were not single and if they were, they were not living as room mates in brooklyn or dupont circle and drinking spots or mimosas with other preadults in the weekends. they are married and they had children. and they often had lawns to mow and cars whose oil needed changing. now, look at the numbers. notice in 1970, the average age of marriage for men was 23. and for women, a little less than 21. today, it's 26 and 28 but that's a little bit misleading, actually. because the numbers for college-educated and -- and even those with graduate school creation considerably higher. for women with a b.a., the average age is about 27. for women with a master's or professional degree, professional degree is about 30. now, this means that we have a
as it seems to us today, pre-adulthood is something very new. up until recently the central fact about a woman in her 20s and early 30s was that she was a wife and mother. that was the case whether she was a 23-year-old from ming china or a 26-year-old and america. in fact, most people in their 20s were not single and if they were, they were not living with roommates in williamsburg, brooklyn or dupont circle and drinking shots of mimosas with other pre-adults on weekends. they were married and they had children and they often had cars whose oil needed changing. now let's look at the numbers. in 1970 the average age of marriage for men was 23. and for women, a little less than 21. today, it is 26 and 28 but that is a little bit misleading actually. because the numbers for college-educated and even those with some graduate school education are considerably higher. for women, the average age is about 27. for women with a masters or professional degree, it is about 30. now this means that we have a historically high percentage of single people in their 20s and early 30s. this gives you a little b
